How to Draw a Chemical Process Flow Diagram

Process Flow Diagram widely used in modeling of processes in the chemical industry. A Chemical Process Flow diagram (PFD) is a specialized type of flowchart. With the help of Chemical Process Flow Diagram engineers can easily specify the general scheme of the processes and chemical plant equipment. Chemical Process Flow Diagram displays the real scheme of the chemical process, the relationship between the equipment and the technical characteristics of the process. Chemical Process Flow Diagram illustrates the connections between the basic equipment as well as the overall structure of pipelines and other supporting equipment. The purpose of the PFD is to build the image of the basic idea of ​​the chemical process. ConceptDraw PRO together with its Chemical and Process Engineering solution delivers the possibility to design Chemical Process Flow diagrams. It is designed for chemical industry engineers and designers. Read more
The vector stencils library "Industrial equipment" contains 81 symbols of pumps, compressors, fans, turbines, and power generators.
Use these shapes to design pumping systems, air and fluid compression systems, and industrial process diagrams.
"Process engineering focuses on the design, operation, control, and optimization of chemical, physical, and biological processes. Process engineering encompasses a vast range of industries, such as chemical, petrochemical, mineral processing, advanced material, food, pharmaceutical, and biotechnological industries. The application of systematic computer-based methods to process engineering is process systems engineering." [Process engineering. Wikipedia]

The vector stencils library "Instruments" contains 72 symbols of control instruments and measuring devices: meters and gauges, and callouts, text boxes, and inserts.
Use these shapes to create annotated process flow diagrams (PFD), flow control, manufacturing processes, and distribution system diagrams.
"Process control is an engineering discipline that deals with architectures, mechanisms and algorithms for maintaining the output of a specific process within a desired range.
Process control is extensively used in industry and enables mass production of continuous processes such as oil refining, paper manufacturing, chemicals, power plants and many other industries. Process control enables automation, with which a small staff of operating personnel can operate a complex process from a central control room." [Process control. Wikipedia]
